LEGISLATORS LISTEN WHEN YOU TALK!
The lack of retirement security is critical to address, but the so-called “Secure Choice” program is not necessarily the approach to take.
“Secure Choice”, as drafted…
ignores the abundant private-sector marketplace and the value you provide to your clients
relies on a legislative sleight-of-hand that promises “opt-in” to employers (for now) but “opt-out” restrictions for employees
subjects employers to criminal penalties under the Labor Law
imposes a minimum mandatory 3% contribution by employees
establishes no liability to the State for losses incurred by employees

The Legislature would do better for New York’s private sector by instead supporting S4655 (Seward),
which mandates a task force to examine all the choices available to the State to help the private sector be more retirement secure.
